The Toronto Marlies (24-12-2-2) are home following a 7-game road trip to host the Chicago Wolves (21-15-2-2) this afternoon at Ricoh Coliseum at 3pm ET. This will be the final match-up between the two teams this season.
The Wolves last hit the ice on Tuesday against the Utica Comets in Utica where they fell 2-1. Rookie Ty Rattie scored the lone goal for the Wolves. Mark Mancari leads the team in scoring with 25 points over 34 games. The last time the Marlies and the Wolves faced off was a week ago on Friday, January 17th where the Marlies came away with a 3-2 victory.
This will be the second game in a three-in-three for the Marlies. Last night, the Marlies were in Hamilton where they shutout the Bulldogs 2-0 in their 9th match-up of the season. Wade MacLeod and Greg McKegg had the tallies for the Marlies while Drew MacIntyre earned his first shutout of the season.
